Review by:
I use TG covers, both the standard one and the 365 versions outdoors 24/7 in Florida. My equipment safely lives under these covers. I use them to cover my equipment even in my observatory to keep bats, spiders, frogs, etc from wanting to use my equipment to make homes each night. I also use them to cinch shut and keep a GoldenRod in there (heater to prevent dew build up from humidity causing rust, etc). I recommend you get the next size up, no matter what you're covering. I got the 14" cover to cover my 10" and it does it very well, with room to spare, so that different configurations still fit (such as side by side or piggyback setups). I use this 14" version to also cover my 150mm F8 refractor in a side by side with an 80mm F7.5 APO and it fits with room to spare, plus finders, and other accessories. Always go a size up!
